Having this quote in our minds, we gathered today to bid farewell to Toni, on of our exceptional ASA-Intern from Germany, after her enriching three-month internship with GYIN Gambia Chapter. As we reflect on her time with us, we are filled with gratitude and admiration for the impact she has left on our organization.
“Though miles may lie between us, we are never far apart, for friendship doesn’t count miles, it’s measured by the heart.” – Unknown
Toni’s journey with us has been a testament to the transformative power of intercultural and international cooperations as well as partnerships. She proofed her skills in project management, intercultural communication and inspirational team work. Her commitment to her role went far beyond the ordinary. She not only organized a comprehensive entrepreneurship training program together with Jana, but also initiated and conducted a new training program in marketing & Advertisement with a focus on the AIDA-Model.
In addition to her primary responsibilities, Toni took the initiative to conduct personal development activities, including a Canva graphic design workshop. This not only broadened the skill set of our members but also ignited their creativity and presented them with fresh opportunities they might not have otherwise had. Toni’s commitment to support all project activities with lots of motivation and positive mindset is remarkable. Her ability to secure resources ensured the thriving of our projects, reaching and impacting even more lives. She wasn’t just an intern; she was a driving force behind our mission, ensuring its sustainability and expansion.
Toni’s active participation in various events not only strengthened our network but also fostered international connections, opening doors for potential collaborations in the future. Toni’s project management skills and proficiency in proposal writing elevated our initiatives, enabling us to explore new horizons and partnerships beyond borders.
As we bid farewell to Toni, we do so with a heavy heart but also with a profound sense of gratitude for her outstanding contributions. Her stay with us has been a testament to the positive impact one individual can have within an organization. We are not just saying goodbye to an intern; we are celebrating the remarkable legacy she has built in our lives.
As Toni embarks on her next adventure, we thank her for her unwavering commitment, her diplomatic and friendly character, and the incredible transformative cooperations she has brought to GYIN Gambia Chapter. Her impact will continue to inspire us as we move forward.
We wish Toni all the best in her future endeavors and look forward to the possibility of continued collaboration with her in future trainings, train-the-trainer programmes, and project activities.
